Music video is one of those incredible media forms that spans the continuum from highly commercial imagery to experimental techniques and processes – and, indeed, it is a form that allows and even requires experimentation to drive commercial development. At SCU I teach a unit on music video, COM10113 Visions of Light: Making Music Video. Students in this unit have produced some pretty cool things – check it out!
So, alongside teaching this unit, I’ve begun to produce work in this genre as well. It’s allowed me to explore and experiment with new techniques, and to really hone my skills. Here’s a brief selection:
The Moviolas – “Sirena Garden”
The Moviolas – “The Shining”
Leigh Carriage – “Breaking Point”
Mike Cooper – “Industrial Hazard”
